Chromatic Flowers

2018-03-09T23:15:41+00:00

BACK TO FLORAL COLLECTION FLORAL PAINTINGS COLLECTION Chromatic Flowers This painting was the second study of ‘Poppies’ by the artist, and began as a plein air watercolour. It is done in a more abstract fashion using watercolour washes, backgrounds, colour lifts, colour runs, blending, gradations and drybrush techniques. As Teyjah describes it, [...]

Complementary Poppies

2018-03-09T23:09:42+00:00

BACK TO FLORAL COLLECTION FLORAL PAINTINGS COLLECTION Complementary Poppies This was the first of a several studies of poppies. In this first painting of it, Teyjah uses complementary colours schemes, not literal colours. She does this purposefully in order to test what it will look like. Techniques include washes, watercolours, bleeding, [...]

Bella Blue

2018-03-09T23:59:43+00:00

BACK TO FLORAL COLLECTION FLORAL PAINTINGS COLLECTION Bella Blue This painting presents more defined shapes, and seems more meticulously done. The background is all done in blue which creates an emphasis on the accent of reds and whites in the flowers. This was another response painting done with Raymond Chow that [...]

Red, White and Blue

2018-03-09T23:57:30+00:00

BACK TO FLORAL COLLECTION FLORAL PAINTINGS COLLECTION Red, White and Blue The green background is unusual for Teyjah as she is not a big fan of the colour green. This painting shows much more defined flowers. The artist describes it as a “happy kind of painting -- almost childlike in its approach.” [...]

Pretty in Pink

2018-03-10T00:01:06+00:00

BACK TO FLORAL COLLECTION FLORAL PAINTINGS COLLECTION Pretty in Pink Through the response method, there are splashes of colour that evolved and shaped this painting. There is a looseness and simplicity in the strokes of colour which makes this really beautiful, with a sense that it is not complicated. You’ll also see [...]

Lady in Red

2018-03-10T00:00:38+00:00

BACK TO FLORAL COLLECTION FLORAL PAINTINGS COLLECTION Lady in Red “In ‘Lady in Red’, an accidental discovery influenced interesting textures. It was a reaction from the different brands of paints, but it caused a very cool effect. This painting is like a beautiful visual conversation that Raymond and I had over [...]

Brown Sugar

2018-03-02T17:06:34+00:00

BACK TO FLORAL COLLECTION FLORAL PAINTINGS COLLECTION Brown Sugar This painting is a flurry of orange, greens and yellows. The background is a bit darker and sultrier in its tonality, and if you are really astute you may see a frog in the background. This is because in the Raymond Chow Series [...]

Mango Mane

2018-03-02T00:41:39+00:00

BACK TO FLORAL COLLECTION FLORAL PAINTINGS COLLECTION Mango Mane This is a more recent painting inspired by a trip to Florida where Teyjah became obsessed with mangos and coconuts. “I would go right under the tree and take a photograph in all different directions to capture the textures and shapes of these [...]

Canna Glory

2018-03-02T00:43:14+00:00

BACK TO FLORAL COLLECTION FLORAL PAINTINGS COLLECTION Canna Glory This is Teyjah’s favourite of her floral collection, as she feels this was her first breakthrough painting. You can see how beautiful and wondrous this flower was, and the way it stood in all its glory before it faded away. The visual was [...]

Kodachrome Basin

2018-03-23T19:22:12+00:00

BACK TO FLORAL PAINTINGS COLLECTION FLORAL PAINTINGS COLLECTION Kodachrome Basin Inspiration for this painting came from Teyjah’s visit to Yellowstone Park. In her mind’s eye, she imagined looking down from space into the Kodachrome Basin and this inspired her to paint this scene. This piece was first created by the artist as [...]

Perfect Hibiscus II

2018-03-02T01:34:06+00:00

BACK TO FLORAL COLLECTION FLORAL PAINTINGS COLLECTION Perfect Hibiscus I This fractured space floral was done in acrylic, while the other was done in watercolour. The artist describes it as ‘very in your face’. This is the same ‘Perfect Hibiscus’, but with a different treatment and technique that re-interprets the painting. It [...]

Fandango Dance

2018-03-09T21:12:22+00:00

BACK TO FLORAL COLLECTION FLORAL PAINTINGS COLLECTION Fandango Dance Teyjah was teaching a class when she started this painting, and first put colours down on the canvas, as is her usual technique. As she progressed in the demonstration, a loose interpretation of a still life was created. This painting is a mixed [...]

Spring Hymn

2018-03-09T21:13:20+00:00

BACK TO FLORAL COLLECTION FLORAL PAINTINGS COLLECTION Spring Hymn Truly an abstract, this painting was created from a still life of a beautiful floral arrangement. The artist creates different textures using mixed media, acrylic, gels, scratches and alcohol spritzes. “What I love is the way the shapes interrelate. It appears cohesive [...]

Poppies for Free

2018-03-09T23:16:31+00:00

BACK TO FLORAL COLLECTION FLORAL PAINTINGS COLLECTION Poppies for Free “Fractured space technique is used here, but it’s done in acrylics in a watercolour fashion. The poppies were painted first, then she fractured up the space and added pen & ink to give the piece a different visual feel. I placed [...]

Perfect Hibiscus

2018-03-02T01:20:54+00:00

BACK TO FLORAL COLLECTION FLORAL PAINTINGS COLLECTION Perfect Hibiscus This was Teyjah’s favourite of the two Hibiscus as she saw it as very voluptuous and sensual. In painting this, she recalled she had a big supply of red watercolours, but could not identify the reds at the time as they were not [...]

Garden Party

2018-03-02T23:28:46+00:00

BACK TO FLORAL COLLECTION FLORAL PAINTINGS COLLECTION Garden Party This piece is an imaginative garden created entirely out of Teyjah’s head, but also perhaps inspired after her fall into a wild rose bush. This experience may have brought her sense of humour out on to the canvas. She recalls how she was [...]

Blue Belle I

2018-03-09T21:19:44+00:00

BACK TO FLORAL COLLECTION FLORAL PAINTINGS COLLECTION Blue Belle First started in a plein air session, Teyjah drew it outside and then painted it later. She imposed colours to make the flower come alive, purposely choosing complementary colours for it. The orange background set against the blue flower gives a great [...]

Black Beauty

2018-03-02T23:29:23+00:00

BACK TO FLORAL COLLECTION FLORAL PAINTINGS COLLECTION Black Beauty Done with collage papers, exotic papers and skeleton leaves, this piece is a beautiful rendition of a floral that was created out of Teyjah’s imagination. One of Teyjah’s more cherished pieces that with a good degree of sadness, just sold recently. [...]

BACK TO FLORAL COLLECTION FLORAL PAINTINGS COLLECTION On a Rainy Day This beautiful collage reminded me of the patterns one gets when you look into a stream that has autumn leaves floating downriver. One of my favorites. 2002 SIZE: 11” x 14 1/2” PRICE: $665 CONTACT ME TO PURCHASE [...]

Japanese Irises

2018-03-15T17:27:23+00:00

BACK TO FLORAL PAINTINGS COLLECTION FLORAL PAINTINGS COLLECTION Japanese Irises This painting is based on Japanese Iris flowers, however it is substantially different to how it would look in its natural setting. This is one of Teyjah’s trademarks as she rarely sticks to true colours. A complementary colour scheme was chosen [...]
